A Bit of Geekishness

Spam statistics for the Major. Upgrade to version 2.5.

First, here are some statistics from my email spam catcher, SpamSieve, for the month of March:

Filtered Mail

  • 1,040 Good Messages
  • 14,076 Spam Messages (93%)
  • 438 Spam Messages Per Day

SpamSieve Accuracy

  • 2 False Positives
  • 61 False Negatives (97%)
  • 99.6% Correct

To be honest, I administer two domains that get mail and I review all the misaddressed mail. Unfortunately, spammers will take a domain, like majormike.net and add a bunch of fake names in the hope that they will get lucky and come up with a real address. This tends to proliferate the number of bogus messages I have to review. But you can be sure I won’t let bzjz@majormike.net pass.

Second, I just converted the underlying software that supports this site to the latest version: WordPress 2.5. Now aren’t you impressed? I has a few glitches, but it looks like a good product.

  1. I hate to admit that I don’t understand any of that lingo—maybe that has something to do with the generation gap????
